Free breast checks at mobile van
BreastScreen WA is continuing its tour of the region, offering its free service at Pingelly Swimming Pool on Somerset Street until January 14.
The service will then travel to Boddington and will be there from January 15 to 23.
Women aged 40 or over can access the free screening mammography service.
Breast cancer is the most common life-threatening cancer for women and one in eight women in Australia will develop breast cancer in their lifetime.
Having a screening mammogram (breast X-ray) every two years significantly increases the chance of a woman surviving breast cancer and reduces the amount of treatment required.
More than 75 per cent of breast cancers occur in women over the age of 50.
